Malign Velocities: Accelerationism and Capitalism

Opposed to the necessity for pace, Malign Velocities tracks acceleration because the symptom of the continuing crises of capitalism.

That’s one generic tale. one other, stranger, tale is informed right here: of these who imagine we haven’t long past quick adequate. rather than rejecting the expanding pace of capitalist construction they argue that we must always embody and speed up it. Rejecting this end, Malign Velocities tracks this ‘accelerationism’ because the symptom of the distress and discomfort of labour lower than capitalism. Retracing a sequence of historic moments of accelerationism—the Italian Futurism; communist accelerationism after the Russian Revolution; the ‘cyberpunk phuturism’ of the ’90s and ’00s; the subconscious fantasies of our integration with machines; the apocalyptic accelerationism of the post-2008 second of obstacle; and the terminal second of unfavorable accelerationism—suggests the pleasures and pains of velocity sign the necessity to disengage, negate, and enhance a brand new politics that really demanding situations the intended pleasures of speed.

“Always deterritorialize! Or so is going the chant of modern ‘accelerationist’ idea. Intoxication opposed to intoxication, schizophrenia opposed to schizophrenia, delirium opposed to delirium—the accelerationist trends of millennial lifestyles are laid naked during this concise quantity through the writer who first prompt the time period. From the historic avant-garde, via Detroit techno and technology fiction, to Nick Land and the Cybernetic Cultures study Unit (CCRU), Benjamin Noys unearths the ideological fantasies of pace. we should always brush off accelerationism for its capitalophilia, he concludes, yet defend it for its extremism: pass a long way, cross deep and move detrimental to get actual. ” —Alexander R.

Sample text

If statistical analysis shows consistency between beta propositions—including type (a) and type (b)—and empirical data, the abstract society constructed by the theory is a good approximation of the real world society; otherwise the model fails. If all models fail, then the theory fails, as shown above. The study of capitalism that we are going to carry out in this book will utilize the alpha-beta method, which is a particular method of Popperian epistemology, as shown above. Therefore, we have established the rules of scientific knowledge that we are going to apply for rejecting or accepting economic theories that seek to explain capitalism.

The degree of income inequality between individuals will be measured by the Gini index, which varies between zero and one. The value of zero indicates perfect equality in the distribution of income, whereas the value of one indicates perfect inequality (all income concentrated in the hands of one individual). Certainly, the empirical Gini index can hardly reach the value of zero or one. 20. Therefore, the use of the terms ―low-inequality‖ and ―high-inequality‖ societies in this book will be in reference to these actual extreme values.

The observable conditions will therefore be logically derived from the model of a theory and will take the form of an empirical prediction of the model. For simplicity, we could call it beta proposition as well, although it does not refer to causality relations in this case. 36 In the economic process, the notion of equilibrium may refer to a static process or a dynamic process. In the first case, the model assumes that the relationships among endogenous variables are contemporaneous, whereas in the dynamic process some or all are inter-temporal.
